Chelsea manager decision looms

Published Add your comment

European champions Chelsea may appoint a new manager in the next couple of weeks and interim boss Roberto Di Matteo has enhanced his chances after guiding the Blues to their maiden Champions League title, according to the club's chief executive Ron Gourlay.

Di Matteo was given the job for the remainder of the season following the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas in March and led Chelsea to success in both the FA Cup and Champions League. Despite the trophies it remains unclear if owner Roman Abramovich will give the former West Brom boss the job on a full-time basis.

"(A new manager could be appointed) any time over the next couple of weeks and certainly by the time we go on tour," he said. "The players report back on July 4th or 5th and in an ideal world you want the coach in position by then."
